Between 4 and 5 miles E. by N. of Darlington is the Port of Bond Head. It consists of a wharf run out into 10 feet water ; but from its exposed situation can only be approached in fine weather, or when the wind is off shore.


Four miles E. of this port there is a large boulder some distance in the Lake, called the Peach Stone, and 4 miles E. of this, again, there is a reef of boulders extending 200 or 300 yards into the Lake in a southerly direction, off a headland.


In running from Darlington to Port Hope or Cobourg, steer E. 1/2 N. for 18 or 20 miles to avoid these dangers, giving the shore a good mile berth; then N. E. by E. 1/2 E. for Port Hope, and E. N. E. 1/4 E. for Cobourg.
